40 Years Later, Lucy Discoverer Don Johanson Adds to Human Origin Story

Paleoanthropologist Donald Johanson, Virginia M. Ullman Chair in Human Origins at Arizona State University and founding director of the Institute of Human Origins, delivered the second annual Patrusky Lecture on October 19, 2014 during New Horizons in Science, a program of research briefings presented annually by the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing. The way Johanson sees it, the nature of humanness is one of the biggest questions there is — not just for our past, but for our future as well.

“I’m convinced that understanding our evolutionary journey is going to play a role in our future, our future survival as well as the survival of all creatures on this planet,” he said. “We know we have a united past, we know that we are the same species, we know we have inherited the same capabilities. And I think hopefully this is going to lead to a world in which we’re more responsible to the natural world — the natural world that ultimately was our creator on this planet. …

“I think it’s time for this species, the most powerful, the most destructive and at the same time the most creative species on planet Earth — Homo sapiens — to stop acting as if there was some other place for us to move to.”

Miki Ben-Dor, M.B.A., Ph.D presenting at the 2nd Annual Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS12). —Man The Fat Hunter: Animal Fat Shortage as a Driver of Human Evolution and Prehistory.  This video presents an excellent argument for early man’s diet being a search for animal fat.

Abstract: Using a bioenergetic approach and physiological, anatomical, archaeological, ethnographic, isotopic, botanical, genetic and zoological evidence my research has identified an obligated animal fat requirement in human nutrition beginning with the Homo erectus.
